Spencer Elliott – “Torque”


West Virginia-based artist Spencer Elliott showcases his captivating instrumental rock sound throughout the track “Torque,” released today. Also featuring bassist Sean Sydnor and drummer Chris Hudson alongside Elliott’s prog-influenced guitar mastery, “Torque” intrigues with its initial developments. Serene guitar fluttering provides an accessibly light introduction, with the drums and bass incorporating with seamless precision. The track is in full gear by the one-minute mark, especially standing out as Sydnor’s bass work envelops around 02:30 and into the rise shortly thereafter. “Torque” is a stirring success showcasing the musicianship of all musicians involved, crafting a memorable instrumental rock sound.

“Torque” is the lead single from Elliott’s upcoming fourth release, the album SE3, out on April 8th.

“Torque” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2022’ Spotify playlist.
